MI defeat DC by 29 runs despite fifties by Shaw and Stubbs in IPL 2024

In a thrilling match at Wankhede Stadium on Sunday, Mumbai Indians defeated Delhi Capitals by 29 runs in Indian Premier League 2024. Prithvi Shaw and Tristan Stubbs scored half-centuries, but Gerald Coetzee’s four-wicket haul proved decisive for Mumbai Indians.

Shaw’s explosive 66 off 40 balls and Stubbs’ aggressive 71 off 25 balls were not enough to chase down Mumbai Indians’ target of 235. Romario Shepherd’s unbeaten 39 and contributions from Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, and Tim David guided Mumbai Indians to 234/5 in 20 overs.

Delhi Capitals, despite losing David Warner early, put up a fight with Shaw and Abishek Porel’s partnership. Shaw’s first half-century of IPL 2024 came at a crucial time, but Mumbai Indians’ bowling, led by Coetzee and Bumrah, proved too strong for Delhi Capitals.

Coetzee’s clinical final over, where he took three wickets, sealed the victory for Mumbai Indians. Bumrah’s milestone of 150 IPL wickets and Stubbs’ aggressive batting display were highlights of the match, but Mumbai Indians’ all-round performance secured their first points in the tournament.
